We're used to seeing pre- and postseason selections recognizing players and teams that are expected to do well in the coming season and those who actually do perform well. Mitch Holthus, the voice of the Kansas City Chiefs but also an announcer on the Big 12 Network during the winter months and a regular contributor to the Big 12 men's basketball blog, has a different way of looking at things in Big 12 basketball.

Holthus recently revealed some of his unique "all-conference" teams in Big 12 basketball. He calls them the "All-Something" Teams.
